Captivate Action offers a range of movement and action performance workshops regularly- from training in motion capture, to stage combat, clowning, dance, movement, and a variety of other physical performance skills.
Our Specialist Workshops run regularly, with a different specialist-tutor each session. These classes are created to develop skills in movement and physical story-telling for any medium.
Motion Capture training is through our Mocap Experience Melbourne (Australia) and Performance Capture Intensive (U.K.) courses. This training is unique in both countries, and is created to give you the skills and knowledge you need for working in Motion Capture.
Dramatic Combat includes one-day workshops or weekenders, evening classes, intensive courses, and industry-endorsed certification courses.
We are also always happy to tailor a training day on request for individuals, groups, casts or leaning institutions.
